A summary of addiction
For someone who doesn’t suffer from an addiction, it can be difficult to understand how and why people become addicted to drugs or alcohol in the first place. How can someone continue to use substances that they know are harmful? Unfortunately, when an addiction takes hold, logic and reason quickly disappear to be replaced by insatiable urges for more drugs or alcohol.
An extremely complex mental health condition, addiction is an illness that requires medical diagnosis. It leaves its victims feeling lost, and unable to find help.
One of the biggest indicators that someone is suffering from an addiction is that an addict knows how much drugs or alcohol is damaging them, but they still can’t help themselves in looking for their next hit of drugs or next alcoholic drink.
Sadly, the development of an addiction is all too easy. Substance abuse combines with mental health issues and for certain kinds of people, the long-term results are often horrible. Substance abuse, particularly of alcohol, can begin from highly normal social situations.
Socialising in the United Kingdom regularly involves people drinking alcohol and people drink and take drugs, legal or otherwise, to derive pleasure.
Most people are happy enough to “try anything once” but other people will continue to drink to excess and experiment with drugs to the detriment of their health.
Something that begins as a short lived “high” may quickly spiral out of control. It’s a scary fact that some drugs are immediately addictive. Most who try a drug for the first time are not prepared for this, or the negative results of their experimentation.
Addiction can begin with something as small as peer pressure and it can also form as someone attempts to suppress troubling, negative emotions that are caused by mental health conditions or troubles at home as examples.
The role of the brain
There is still a lot for us to understand about the human brain – it’s a powerful organ that still holds mysteries to scientists. It is in fact so powerful, it can completely take control of someone suffering from an addiction.
The brain will recognise substances that give it, and your body, good feelings. It quickly understands what constitutes as a reward and over a period of time, substances that feel good initially will soon change the chemical makeup of the brain.
Instead of associating short-lived pleasure to substances, the brain will instead emit strong signals to keep taking drugs or alcohol.
Rehab with Addiction Advocates
With local charity solutions and the NHS having long waiting lists, Addiction Advocates can help you to overcome your addiction right away.
With a 28-day commitment to a treatment program in our residential rehab centre, we will be able to diagnose you with an addiction and identify the best way forward for your recovery.
After an initial consultation via the telephone, we will arrange for you to check in to our state-of-the-art rehab centre and introduce you to your key workers. You will also have a comprehensive physical and psychological assessment.
Your addiction treatment will begin with a course of detox. The time you spend in the detox clinic is an essential part of ridding yourself of the influence of drugs and alcohol for good.
Your detox will undoubtedly be a difficult period of your treatment. As the presence of drugs or alcohol is removed from your system, your body will display a series of withdrawal symptoms. These can range from uncomfortable to dangerous, and we’ll be able to help you with a medically assisted detox if required.
Drug and alcohol rehabilitation
When your detox has been completed, you’ll be able to take part in therapy sessions. Your treatment program will be created with you as an individual in mind and will be tailored to your recovery goals.
You will be able to undergo individual therapy sessions, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and group sessions. These sessions are an opportunity for us to treat any underlying mental health conditions that may have sparked your addiction in the first instance.
Group therapy also gives you the opportunity to share your experience with other recovering addicts and learn from theirs. This positive peer pressure motivates you to stick at your recovery during the difficult periods you’ll endure.
When you leave our care, we’ll draw up a secondary care program that will aid your ongoing, long-term recovery in the trying year after your rehab treatment.
We’ll provide you with access to our highly trained staff and put you in touch with local support groups.
